A new Foxconn Technology Group factory in central China's Henan Province began production Monday, as the Taiwanese high-tech giant moves its production facilities to inland China.

The 100 million U.S. dollar factory is owned by Futaihua Precision Electronics (Zhengzhou) Co. Ltd., a 100 percent-owned Foxconn subsidiary.

It will mostly produce Apple's iPhone, according to an agreement between Foxconn and the government of Zhengzhou City, Henan's capital city.

A Xinhua reporter saw more than 500 employees working on a production line at a temporary workshop the company has rented from the city government.

"It took us only one month to renovate the workshops and the workers' dormitories and to install the facilities," said Lin Zhenghui, deputy general manager of the group.

The factory's employees are mostly from Henan and have worked at Foxconn's plant in the coastal city of Shenzhen. The workers volunteered to work at the new plant, said a Futaihua spokesman.

Construction of the company's permanent plant will begin on Aug. 20 at a site several kilometers away.

The permanent plant is expected to begin production in one year. It will make about 200,000 iPhones per day.
